Location/Hours

Just one hour's drive east of Phoenix or 90 minutes north of Tucson -- its no wonder the Arboretum has repeatedly been voted "Best Day Trip" in polls of Arizona residents.

The Arboretum is located at #37615 Arboretum Way, Superior, AZ, 85173
Near Highway 60 Milepost #223 as you approach the historic copper mining town of Superior, about one hour's drive due east of Phoenix on the Superstition Freeway.
Do you need Maps and Directions? Arizona State Parks has an excellent map/direction page to help you get here.

Arriving from Tucson? Take Oracle Road North to Highway 79, continue through and past the town of Florence to the junction where Highway 79 meets Highway 60, then turn right and drive another 12 miles East on Highway 60 to our front gate.

Summer Hours: during May, June, July, August and SEPTEMBER the Arboretum is open daily from 6:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Paid admissions are accepted until 2:00 p.m The day's final visitors admitted at Two O'Clock so those final arrivals still have one full hour to enjoy the gardens and trails -- and the park closes promptly at 3:00 p.m.
